Many women utilize assisted reproductive technology to grow their family, yet few choose to speak about it openly. That all changes today!
We turned to our own community to talk about a story that's very personal to both Bethany and Kathryn. A few weeks ago, Bethany publicly shared that she and her husband John have started the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Kathryn's only niece was born from the process of IVF. We also decided to invite our good friend, Michelle Crossman, who is 7 months pregnant through IVF to join the show for an honest conversation about the female athlete, fertility, and how individuals cope with the process.
We discuss the journey to IVF for both Michelle and Bethany as well as the things they've learned along the way. It's been a very different journey down the same path for both women, but the lessons along the way have been surprisingly similar. Hear about their journey, the emotional ups and downs, coping with loss, and the reason that they have both decided to share this topic in a very public way. More details and show notes available on our blog.
